New to OC Moto.
« on: 09/02/13 10:11PM »
Hello all,

New to the O.C. Moto crowd, just thought I'd pop in and say hello to everyone.  New to OCMoto as I may be, I am not new to riding as I have been riding for quite some time. 

A little about myself, I ride a 2005 Suzuki SV650, it's a custom color scheme and (not to brag or anything, ok maybe a little) I guarantee it is the only one out there of it's kind.  I'm sure some of you here have seen if floating around the Fullerton/Orange area the past 10 months or so.  I have been riding dirt bikes for the past 11 years now and street bikes for the past 6 years so I have "some" knowledge under my belt.   ;D

Anyways, a gentleman from the SVRider forum pointed me in this direction and I have heard a little about this forum elsewhere as well so I figured it's time to sign up and drop in.  I'm honestly not into the whole squids at a bike meets so I'll be staying away from those posts, not to say all the meets here are full of squids but bike nights like the one at CycleGear and other venues of the sort are kind of filled with em. No, the reason I am here is because I recently got my Sundays back from work, meaning I now have time to ride and meet new riders out in the OC area.

So with that in mind, hello everyone and I hope to see some of you guys riding in the coming months.

Oh yah, and  :44:

Ok, so It's not the wildest color scheme out there, but it is all factory painted plastics (even the solo seat, just two-toned with factory paint from a local dealer) and is the only SV I have seen to run a factory two tone like this.  I toyed with the idea of doing a race scheme but I didn't like looking like all of the rest of the riders out there.  Once I got the plastics back from the dealer for paint I fell in love with the scheme, seeing really was believing for me.

Thank you for the welcome and the link, I know Eddimon (the nice man from SVRider that pointed me in this direction) is planning a ride in two weeks and I wasn't sure if he was going to post on SVR or here, now I know where to look if it's on here.  I'm excited to have my Sundays back, it's been too long since I have had enough time to ride for enjoyment.

Welcome to the forum.  :44:

I don't ride often enough at all, but I still enjoy seeing it in the garage knowing that I CAN ride it from time to time :17:

Thank you very much, it is appreciated.   I have poor a god deal of time into making it look the way it does.   I figure if it's going to be with me for a while I might as well do it up nice and enjoy it.

Welcome to the forum.  :44:

That's a bummer. It's always a shame to see a nice bike in the garage and never gets ridden.  Any particular reason you do not ride your sv enough?

Hi O.C. SV650S, Welcome to ocmoto!

Have fun and ride safe!

Yes ride will be posted on SVR.

Are you a Chargers fan? Gerard7aa has an SV650S that is blue with yellow lower fairings, think he has another bike and SV is for sale...

Ok, I guess I can ride safe, if I have to...     ;)    I am not a chargers fan, actually, I don't follow any sport, I hardly watch motogp as it is.  :/ 

I wish I had the money. If I had some spare money floating around I'd finish a TZ250 track bike I have and would spend a lot more time on the track.  But, I don't, so I spend my time on the streets.  But I'll look into what hes got, doesn't hurt to look, even when your on a diet.

I loved my v-twins  :44:

I started out on SVrider and ended up buying my sv1000s off of one of the members

This is a solid community too  :27:

Thank you, I like HID's but was not going to put them in without projectors.  Picked up a headlight housing when I rebuilt the bike that already had these BMW M3 projectors and DDM HID's.  My only complaint is that they only come on when the high beam is pushed, aka they are not dual output lights.  :/

Hah, yah yah, I know it took me a while.  I finally got my Sunday's back from that place, that's the main reason I am here.  I want to find more rides in the area and actually get back out on the bike for fun.

The other gentleman there is Terrance, he wrecked his bike at the track while the two of us were there.  He is currently having "race" fairings put on over at Wickoff Racing and claims that when he gets it back he is going to trade it in for a BMW of some sort with all new gear as well. 

Come on in, I won't be there this weekend but will be there sometime during the week I'm sure.
